According to a study made by LoJack, the biggest US Stolen Vehicle Recovery System, sees that Honda’s Accord tops the most stolen and the most often recovered list.
While police has been heavily fighting the grand theft auto phenomenon, systems like the LoJack have been very useful, allowing easy tracking and in some cases even remote disabling of a stolen car.
“The latest statistics from the FBI indicate that nearly half of vehicles stolen are not returned to the rightful owners, resulting in millions of dollars in assets lost by vehicle owners,” says Patrick Clancy, the Vice President of Law Enforcement for LoJack Corporation.
Yet, as crime does find ways to go about its business, at the top of the list for the most stolen and most often recovered we find Honda’s Accord model, followed by another Honda, the Civic. Toyota’s best-selling Camry comes third, followed by yet another of the brand’s car, the well-known Corolla. Fifth is the first American model, GM’s Chevrolet Silverado. Sixth is another Honda, even if it’s badged with Acura’s brand, the Integra. Cadillac’s Escalade is seventh, eight comes the first Ford, the heavy duty F-350, ninth is another Japanese, the Nissan Altima and finally, tenth is Chevy’s Tahoe.
